THE PEDAL-FRIENDLY AMP WITH SELECTABLE POWER RANGES — PLUS ALL-TUBE SPRING REVERB AND TREMOLO!

Street Price from $649.99

Hayward, CAThe VHT Special 12/20RT adds tube-driven spring reverb and tube tremolo to the pedal-friendly Special 12/20 platform. The 12/20RT features two power ranges with an adjustable Watts control plus a Pentode/Triode switch, a unique preamp designed that excels with pedals, and an all-tube buffered effects loop with send and return level controls. It also features VHTs unique Depth and Texture controls, a convenient built-in 9-volt DC pedal power supply, and an international mains voltage selector switch.
To optimize the amp for a wide variety of output tubes, the VHT Special 12/20RT offers two output-power ranges.  A special voltage range switch safely located behind the rear panel provides the proper voltages for 6V6 or EL84 output tubes (in 12-watt low-voltage/low-power mode). The high voltage 20-watt setting provides the ideal voltages for higher-power 6L6 or EL34 output tubes. The 12/20RT ships with a pair of 6V6 output tubes (VHT 6V6-to-EL84 socket adapters are required for operation with EL84 tubes). In addition, the 12/20RTs variable Watts control can reduce the maximum output power to less than one watt for whisper-quiet volume levels.

The Special 12/20RTs preamp was designed to bring the most out of every effects pedal with enhanced clarity, detail and controlled tube compression. Its low-impedance buffered effects-loop send can effortlessly drive the most difficult pedals without tone or signal loss. Thanks to its variable send and return level controls, the 12/20RTs effects loop can accommodate a wide range of pedal or rack effects. The 12/20RTs Reverb, Tremolo, Depth and Texture controls are post effects loop, so multi-effects users can plug directly into the effect return and still benefit from the post-effects tube reverb and tremolo, while fine-tuning the output stage characteristics with the Depth and Texture controls.
The Special 12/20RT combo and head share the same chassis, circuit and layout design and configuration.

The 12/20RT Combo is loaded with a 12” VHT ChromeBack speaker.

The VHT Special 12/20RT combo has a Street price of $749.99; the Special 12/20RT head has a Street price of $649.99
